Day of General Discussion: Protecting and Empowering Children as Human Rights Defenders

Geneva, 28th September 2018

The 2018 DGD is the first ever global discussion focusing on children human rights defenders. Its main goal is to bring together a global movement for children human rights defenders including children, States, National Human Rights Institutions, Children’s Ombudspersons, the UN, civil society and the private sector to increase general awareness and understanding about :

  • the definition of children human rights defenders, their role and activities;
  • the situation, experiences and the views of children human rights defenders;
  • the gaps in international, regional and national human rights law with regard to the protection and empowerment of children human rights defenders;
  • the States’ obligations related to the protection and empowerment of children who act as, or want to become, human rights defenders; and
  • the adults’ roles and responsibilities related to the protection and empowerment of children who act as, or want to become, human rights defenders.
